Communication: Incident

Posted November 13, 2018

We want to thank you all for your concern regarding the safety of our residents and staff and to assure you that everyone is, indeed, safe.

Early this morning, a small electrical fire - limited to a contained area on the first floor - caused a power outage on that floor of the building. Residents, staff and visitors inside the building were evacuated as per safety procedures, but were cleared for re-entry within the space of an hour.

We are currently still experiencing a partial power outage on the main floor and as such, Employment Services and Aquatics programs remain closed. But the Seniors programming in our Active Living Centre 55+ is back up and running!

We are continuing to work to remedy the electrical issue and hope to be back to full service as soon as possible. In the meantime, should you need to contact a member of our team or for emergencies, please contact our administration at (905) 522-9922 ext 100.
